Pet Prevent A Litter (PALS) of Central Texas will host their 19th Annual Pet Fest on October 16, 2021, from 10a to 4p, to promote responsible pet ownership, shelter pet adoptions, local rescue groups, and most importantly the continued efforts to have all pets spayed and neutered and zero pets in shelters. Pet Fest is a FREE family-friendly festival that's designed to raise awareness as well as funds to help those in need to care for and fix their pets. The event will include kids activities, live music, dog races & contests, silent auction & raffles, vendors, pictures with live mermaid, kiddie train rides, bounce castle, $10 pet microchipping, and more!
